Jersey, but what about the East Coast?  Well it's time to make
our move.  Bring a new member to the next meeting, have them
officially register, and get a Gaslight beer compliments of the
DB15 Cask Commissioners.

Why sign up for the club dues full payment plan?

Enjoy the many benefits available to club members on the
full-payment plan. A one time fee of only $50 covers all meetings,
plus discounts for DB15 special events.

This year members received benefits that totaled well over the dues
amount.  Substantial discounts were provided for the TAP NY
beer fest trip, the Newark Bears baseball outing, the NJ Brewers
Festival, and the Victorian Dinner.  In addition members on the full
pay plan are exempt from the individual meeting beer fee.

Ask club treasurer Brian Lynch, or any Cask Commissioner for the
full details at the next meeting.

Beer Wars at Next Meeting

If you missed the short run of Beer Wars in your local theaters
don't worry because the Draughtboard 15 has it! Oenophiles
have SIDEWAYS and BOTTLE SHOCK; now we beer-loving
counterparts can claim a film as our own. This truly American
tale looks at the struggle between big breweries (Coors, Miller,
and Budweiser) and their smaller competition (such as Dogfish
Head) as the companies fight for shelf space and bar orders.
Directed by Anat Baron, this documentary not only looks at the
beer industry, but also examines the plight of small businesses in
America. Don't miss seeing this at our October 11 meeting, 3 PM.
